Sketchbook Pro Pencil in Artrage by rad66203 Sketchbook Pro Pencil in Artrage by rad66203
Love Sketchbook Pro pencil. I tried to customize the Artrage pencil but could never get close. Playing around with the ink pens I found they work perfectly as a replacement. These are the settings I use to mimic the Sketchbook Pro pencil. Depending on how much coffee you've had you might need to increase the smoothness setting. Best used with a grey color.

The drawing on the right is by Joe Mad. One the left is my reproduction drawing. These pencils/Ink pens were used.

Go to File>Install Package. This will load the Pencils to the Ink Pens. Select the Ink Pen (on the half circle) and click the Presets. You'll have a new group called Sketchbook Pro Pencils. Select it and select one of the pencils. The top is my personal fav.

Also included are several pencil colors. And two non-photo blue colors.

i just installed it! thanks so much for sharing!!!
I agree.
Funny. There are more interactive options in the ink settings than in pencil settings...
Also the pencil is very responsive on the choose of paper if you make sketches in lower resolutions.

By the way - is there a way to lock the same paper for all layers - especially when making a new layer in the same document and changing drawing media it sometimes have another canvas?

Uhm...? I don't think so. That's a feature you'll have to request.

Okay, this is superb. I'm building a digital painting course and I'm very glad to have found this to share with my students.

NIce!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to try this
Wow. First off, your sketch looks absolutely astonishing. Absolutely gorgeous. Great job done there.
And thanks for the tip, they do work perfect.

So, I was thinking if I could ask for some help? cause I am unable to turn my paper from horizontal to vertical and it's starting to get on my nerves... do you maybe know how?
And if you can get lined of squared paper?

artrage does not have a Photoshop style rotate canvas. You have to either re-size the painting or rotate it with the canvas position-er... the big round thing.

The lines you have to draw yourself or get the grid script at the artrage fourms.
